The former chief inspector of schools Sir Chris Woodhead, who had motor neurone disease, has died, friends said.

The 68-year-old, who was the top schools watchdog for six years until 2000 and had some fierce clashes with teaching unions, was diagnosed with the disease in 2006.

He resigned as chief schools inspector after a series of rows with then-education secretary David Blunkett.
